Sometimes Cole resists going to bed at night. He will call us into his room to give him a toy. He'll call us for a drink of water. He'll call for us to cast out the monsters using various methods (flashing the lights on and off, putting the monsters in jail, or using flashlights to chase them away). Sometimes he'll just call "Mommy! Mommy! Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"
Last night, he was pulling one of these routines when suddenly, as if he was fed up, he called saucily, "DAD! D-L-L-D, DAD!"
